TITLE: Impact of perioperative intraperitoneal chemotherapy on the treatment of primary gastric cancer.
PUBDATE: 20030701
Perioperative intraperitoneal chemotherapy provides effective prevention of peritoneal recurrence after resection in advanced gastric cancer, especially in gastric cancer with serosal invasion. With improved local-regional control, improved survival rate for advanced gastric cancer is achieved. This type of regional chemotherapy is an independent treatment-related prognostic factor for advanced gastric cancer. There are several methods of perioperative intraperitoneal chemotherapy. Among them, early postoperative intraperitoneal chemotherapy is simple and easy to perform.

TITLE: [An experimental study for tumor detection by indocyanine green with near-infrared topography]
PUBDATE: 20020501
We studied tumor detection by indocyanine green (ICG) with near-infrared topography in rat experimental tumors: hepatoma AH109A and osteosarcoma POB 102. Time-intensity curves and topograms after ICG injection were obtained in tumors and surrounding normal tissues. Intensities in tumors were slowly reduced, and intensities in normal tissues were rapidly reduced, resulting in positive tumor image in topogram. It is concluded that near-infrared topography enhanced by ICG is useful for cancer detection.

PUBDATE: 20041001
Cancer is the second most common cause of death in the reproductive years and complicates up to one in 1000 pregnancies. When cancer is diagnosed during pregnancy, the management strategy must take into account both the mother and developing fetus. In this article, the four most common malignancies diagnosed in pregnant patients--cervical and breast cancer, malignant melanoma and lymphoma--will be reviewed, with an emphasis on the impact of the diagnosis and management on the pregnant patient and the developing fetus.

TITLE: [Option of the surgical mode for breast cancer based on the effect of neoadjuvant chemotherapy]
PUBDATE: 20021101
Neoadjuvant chemotherapy has become standard treatment for breast cancer patients to avoid mastectomy in larger tumors. Neoadjuvant chemotherapy permits more breast-conserving surgery to be performed. The treatment outcome is favorable in women whose tumors show a complete pathological response. Histological grade, HER-2, p53, and hormone receptor status are significant predictive factors of a good pathological response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy. In addition, computed tomography and/or magnetic resonance imaging are useful tools in determining the optimal resection area for breast cancer.

PUBDATE: 20020701
Skin manifestations of systemic disease and malignancy are protean. The recognition of a potentially paraneoplastic dermatosis as such must prompt an investigation for occult malignancy. Lack of familiarity with cutaneous clues of internal malignancy may delay diagnosis and treatment of cancer. It is important to consider a paraneoplastic process in the differential diagnosis of a number of eruptive and treatment-resistant dermatoses. These dermatoses may be the first sign of an occult neoplasm. Their recognition may assist in cancer detection and the swift induction of appropriate therapy.

PUBDATE: 20040101
Colorectal cancer is a frequent disease with an increasing incidence. Its prognosis improved recently because of progress in diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. Rationale and guidelines for colorectal cancer screening using the faecal occult blood test in the average risk population and screening recommendations for high risk groups are presented, as well as diagnostic and therapeutic principles. Because of the efficacy of the new chemotherapy regimens, the availability of biotherapies and the fact that surgery can potentially cure more and more patients, colorectal cancer management needs to be multidisciplinary.

TITLE: Cancer in the elderly.
PUBDATE: 20030701
Cancer, the dreaded killer disease, has its aetiology in several factors like genetic, environmental, diet habits, etc. Age over 65 years is generally considered elderly and the cancer incidence increases with age. Cancer is second to cardiovascular disease for the cause of death in the elderly. The behaviour of certain cancers also differ in the elderly thus adding to the ultimate outcome that is usually confounded by several comorbid illnesses. The prognostic factor varies with type of cancer. Older patients with Hodgkin's disease and acute myeloid leukaemia do worse than breast cancer. Radiation therapy is well tolerated by the elderly.

PUBDATE: 20051201
Venous thromboembolism (TE) is a frequent occurrence in lung cancer patients and can be precipitated by venous stasis, the activation of clotting cascades by pro-coagulant tumour factors and by vascular injury due to chemotherapy and central venous catheters. Subcutaneous low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) has replaced intravenous unfractionated heparin in the treatment of acute TE. The use of long-term LMWH is recommended to prevent the recurrence of TE. Prophylactic treatment is indicated in patients undergoing surgery or hospitalised. Heparin appears to have distinct anti-neoplastic as well as anticoagulant effects, which benefit overall survival.

In relation to the risk of colorectal cancer, the population is divided into high-risk and average-risk groups. Patients at high risk are followed according to the national recommendations. Patients at average risk are examined according to their primary symptom(s). The strategy is based on the diagnostic strategy described in a Danish Health Technology Assessment published in 2001. The article states the recommendations for the high- risk groups and describes the value of the individual primary symptoms of colorectal cancer for average-risk patients and the examinations recommended accordingly.

A new method of treatment of pulmonary cancer using the introduction of cytostatic drugs and prednisolone into the tumor during bronchofibroscopy was suggested. This increases the effectiveness of treatment and reduces the side effects of drugs. Complete regression of tumor was observed in 9 (32.1%) patients of the main group, partial regression--in 12 (42.9%). In control group the regression was observed in 6 (20%) and in 10 (33.3%) patients, respectively.

PUBDATE: 20020601
Traditional methods for cancer treatment have been aimed at killing the cancer cells. Unfortunately this approach all too often is accompanied by harmful killing of normal cells. The present paper describes an experimental program in our laboratory in which cancer cells are treated so as to revert to normal cell behavior. This process, which we have named reverse transformation, appears to offer considerable hope in the treatment of a large number of malignancies.

(1) Atrasentan (Xinlay(R)) is an anti-cancer drug from a new class of agents called selective endothelin-A receptor antagonists. The orally administered drug is being studied in a subset of patients with advanced prostate cancer. (2) Phase II and III studies evaluating time to clinical and radiographic progression failed to demonstrate a significant benefit with atrasentan versus placebo. (3) The adverse effects, observed more frequently in those treated with atrasentan than in placebo-treated patients, were peripheral edema, rhinitis, headache, infection, dyspnea, and heart failure. (4) Atrasentan's role in the various stages of advanced prostate cancer, and relative to the chemotherapeutic agent docetaxel, has not been determined.

PUBDATE: 20030201
The patient was a 70-year-old man who had sigmoid colon cancer with multiple lung and paraaortic lymph node metastases. Sigmoidectomy was performed on August 3, 2001. After the operation, combined l-Leucovorin (LV) + 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) was carried out. As a result, lung and lymph node metastases were reduced markedly and CEA level decreased. It is suggested that this combination therapy may be useful for advanced colon cancer patients.
